Method

Step 1

Preparation: Boil the kettle. Prepare all ingredients as indicated above.

Step 2

Mixed mushrooms: Slice the larger mushrooms thinly, including the stalks, and separate the shimeji mushrooms (smaller mushrooms).

Step 3

Tamarind sauce: Mix together the tamarind paste, maple syrup, garlic and chilli (as much as you like) then add boiling water (6 tbsp for 4; 3 tbsp for 2) and mix well. Place a pan on low heat, pour in the sauce and warm for 3-4 minutes, making sure that it doesn’t boil. Remove and set aside in a bowl.

Step 4

Soba noodles: Boil the kettle. Place the noodles in a bowl, cover with the boiling water and soak for 2-3 minutes until cooked, but with a slight bite. Drain and set aside.

Step 5

Mushrooms: Using the same pan you used for the sauce, on medium-high heat, add a drizzle of olive oil. When hot, add the mushrooms without overcrowding the pan and sauté for 4-5 minutes until golden and cooked. In the last minute, add the spring onions and cook until golden. Season with salt and pepper.

Step 6

Serve by topping the noodles with the mushrooms and spring onions, drizzle over the tamarind sauce and sprinkle with fresh coriander and peanuts.
